Default Cold A/C

well, i stole a thermometer from school today and on the way home i decided to crank the A/C and stick it down one of the vents. well imagine my supprise when i pulled it out and saw it reading 7 degrees celsius (roughly 45 degrees F for us US people). now my question is, is that abnormally cold, or just normal?

That'* not as cold as the Saturn gets... ...but the '96 Saturn was rated the best as far as a/c. This last summer when it got 115* it was still cold inside that car!! I was thoroughly impressed.

Correct A/C temperature using R-12 and Max recirc A/C at 80 degrees F should be 36-43 degrees F. Higher outside temperatures and R-134a should be slightly higher, but not much (maybe 40-45 degrees F)

Who needs AC this time of year when the temperature here is only in the 20'* and at night it'* already been below 0. I think i'll wait until next summer to see if my AC gets that cold.

Running on Auto causes the AC compressor to work....which removes humidity from the inside of the car, allowing the windows to defog. Comes in handy in the winter.
